Default 18hp Diesel Zero Turn Mower

Has anyone out there ever heard of a "MT" zero-turn mower?

My wife's uncle has one and is thinking of selling it. He says it is older (~10 years?) and is powered by a 18 hp Perkins diesel, with a 54 or 60" deck. He hasn't given me a price, yet, but I wanted to see if I could find some information on the unit first to make an educated decision. He told me right now the only problem with it is that the hydro cooling fan is broken. (I'm envisioning something like the fan on the Kubota BX tractors)

Anyone?

"MT"? Who would name theirs "empty"?

Is there any other identifying marks on it as to the mfgr?

If/as I recall, that size Perkins engine was used a lot in the marine industry. Probably a hard engine to beat. Any hour meter?

MTD maybe? Not sure they labeled any generic though; would have suspected White, or CubCadet ect. in that case.

Here is a link that might help you out.

Walker makes a mower model MT but I did not see a brand named MT. The list appears fairly comprehensive.

Can you get a picture of it? Walker's in particular have a unique design. They (Walker's) are a very good mower.
